Britney Spears Breaks Her Silence On 'Negative And Traumatising' Documentaries

Britney Spears has directly spoken out against a series of documentaries about her life and court battles.

The 39-year-old has been at the centre of two well-publicised television programmes, which have both intensified speculation about the singer's well-being and her controversial conservatorship.

But it would appear that Britney has been left less than impressed with both New York Times's Framing Britney Spears, and the BBC's more recent effort The Battle For Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatorship - and that's not including an upcoming Britney series thought to be landing on Netflix at some point.

Posting a short video of her doing some choreography, Britney accompanied the dancing with a lengthy caption, which spelled out exactly what she thought of the docs.

"So many documentaries about me this year with other people's takes on my life ... what can I say ... I'm deeply flattered!" she wrote, peppering her comments with a series of emojis.

"These documentaries are so hypocritical, they criticise the media and then do the same thing?"

Britney continued: "I don't know y'all but I'm thrilled to remind you all that although I've had some pretty tough times in my life...I've had wayyyy more amazing times in my life and unfortunately my friends...I think the world is more interested in the negative.

"I mean...isn't this meant to be a business and society about the future? Why highlight the most negative and traumatising times in my life from forever ago? I mean damn..."

Britney ended the post by saying she's looking forward to the trips she's taking and she's adding a miniature koi carp in her garden.

Both documentaries have spurred on the growing #FreeBritney movement - a passionate group of fans calling to release the star from the conservatorship - and have resulted in an increased interest about the star's court cases.

Now, Britney is scheduled to talk about her controversial conservatorship case in court. The pop star will appear before a judge on 23rd June, amid her ongoing battle to have her father, Jamie Spears, removed as her conservator.

Speaking during a hearing on Tuesday, CNN report that the singer's lawyer, Sam Ingham III, said she's now keen to "address the court directly".

"The conservatee has requested that I seek from the court a status hearing at which she can address the court directly," he told Judge Brenda Penny. "My client has asked that it be done on an expedited basis."

The lawyer did not confirm what issues Britney wished to raise in the court appearance, but confirmed the hearing would be about "status of the conservatorship."

Britney has been in a conservatorship since 2008, following psychiatric hospitalisation.

Tyla has contacted the BBC for comment.
